Cisco announced today during Enterprise Connect 2015 that its new collaboration service is having a significant impact on the way teams communicate and collaborate within companies. Employees from multiple industries are using Cisco Spark, launched under the name “Project Squared” last November at Cisco’s Collaboration Summit, to make collaboration easy and secure within and outside of organizations. When teams work collaboratively from anywhere and across any device, businesses are transformed.

Created from customer feedback, Cisco Spark is accessible from almost any desktop or mobile device and creates secure virtual rooms in which teams can work together from anywhere. Just by downloading Cisco Spark from the app store or by typing in a web browser, any member of any team can access the service and open a room or start any topic in Cisco Spark. Once in session, team members securely send messages, share files, start voice and video calls, and share their screens.

People can sign up to use Cisco Spark and start using the following features for free: group messaging, file sharing, video calling and screen sharing meetings in rooms of up to three participants, mobile calendar and contact integration, self-service functionality in line and end-to-end content encryption.

Using Cisco Spark, teams become significantly more productive, as rooms become the only place where files, documents, and decisions are stored, while conducting all their virtual meetings, video calls, and sessions. chat.

Cisco also announced the following customer-driven enhancements:

Room moderation– Users can control who invites (or removes) others in rooms; providing another level of control on top of end-to-end encrypted content.

Simple administration– Administrators can configure single sign-on (SSO) and contact directory synchronization, as well as allow role-based access, get usage reports, and more. Partners begin trials, manage accounts, and ensure that customers get the most out of their Cisco Spark experience.

Calendar integration– Users create a Cisco Spark room using any one-click calendar invite, enabling a virtual workspace for everyone to share content and ideas before, during, and after the actual meeting.

Windows Client– With the new Windows Client, users have faster access to content on the desktop and receive notifications – even if Cisco Spark is not open.

Improved meetings: Firefox users can share their video and computer screen, without plugin requirements. All users can view the video screens and share them simultaneously.

Expanded language support– Language support expanded to include: Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Danish, Dutch, English (UK and America), French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, Spanish (Latin America and Spain), Swedish and Turkish.
